Virtual Appointments

The Department of Neurosurgery is proud to announce a convenient new way for some of our patients to consult with neurosurgeons.

Virtual appointments are now available for some patients of the Department of Neurosurgery, if it is felt to be medically appropriate.  Using a secure online portal, patients and physicians are able to engage in real time, interactive consultations via online video.

Patients and Cedars-Sinai neurosurgeon can have discussions online for:

  • Post-operative follow-up evaluations (for current Cedars-Sinai neurosurgery patients)
  • Routine follow-up appointments (for current Cedars-Sinai neurosurgery patients)
  • Imaging test reviews.  To have a Cedars-Sinai neurosurgeon review and discuss your scans, please click here to learn more about our educational scan review program.

For patients living outside the area, imaging tests can be conducted by a local imaging center, saved on a memory stick and uploaded during your virtual appointment.

The only equipment you will need is:

  • A computer
  • Internet access
  • Webcam with a microphone (or mobile phone)
